Take 250mg Of Vitamin C When Your Throat Is Sore?
can you take 250mg of vitamin c per day? My throat is sick, can I take 250 mg of vitamin C?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Vitamin C or also known as ascorbic acid is a vitamin that the body needs to maintain healthy bones, teeth and skin. You can get vitamin C from a variety of sources. It can be from fruits such as oranges, tomatoes, strawberries, lemons, pineapples, papayas, as well as vegetables such as broccoli.
The consumption of vitamin C is basically done for two reasons. To treat vitamin C deficiency conditions, and to meet daily needs so as to avoid vitamin C deficiency. These two things require different doses, where to prevent vitamin C deficiency, the body usually only needs 25-75 mg in one day.
Regarding your question, with a dose of 250 mg per day, we recommend that you consult your doctor first whether you really need vitamin C at this dose. If not, it would be better if you could get these nutrients from natural sources such as fruits and vegetables that we mentioned above.
In addition, you also have to be aware of the side effects that may be caused, such as flatulence, heartburn, diarrhea, vomiting and stomach pain. If this happens, stop taking these vitamins and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully this is useful.
